Asynchronous APIs like Kafka are becoming increasingly popular when working with distributed applications and microservices that are managing big tasks or processing streams of events. Asynchronous APIs don't wait for the API call to return from the server, rather they provide a callback when the resource is ready. Async APIs are starting to be used in many different architectures, and adoption of them has in fact more than tripled since 2019.
In this webinar, RapidAPI Founder and CEO, Iddo Gino will:
- Look at asynchronous APIs and their role in event-driven architectures.
- Define when to use them and when not to.
- Describe how to choose the right Asynchronous API.
- Examine five best practices when working with Async APIs.
In this video, we look at using RapidAPI Testing’s drag and drop editor to create fake data that is dynamic and changes every time we run the test. This can introduce randomness to your API tests, and make them mimic real-world scenarios.

Whether you want to increase collaboration among internal development teams in your organization, or also with customers and partners, you know you want a central catalog of all your APIs. Compared to a developer portal, an API hub is built to optimize API consumer experience as well as API provider experience, and offers a more vendor-agnostic approach toward API gateways and clouds. By choosing an API Hub over a developer portal, organizations can accelerate API use, speed up time to market, increase development team agility, and grow their API platform.
Join RapidAPI’s Director of Product Marketing Aaron Qayumi and Product Manager Saagar Kurani as they share the top eight reasons to choose an API hub over a developer portal. You will leave understanding:
-Why API hubs offer better API discovery, sharing, and analytics
-How to avoid vendor lock-in to a single cloud or API gateway
-What is required to unify visibility and control across all APIs
-Which features are out-of-the-box in an API hub but are not included in developer portals
Application teams are turning to API design and discovery tools to standardize specification design, ensure API quality, and ease the development process. But approaching API design the right way is just as important as using the right tool when it comes to accelerating API delivery.
Join Micha Mazaheri, the founder and CEO of Paw to learn how to:
-Support any type of web API, with an emphasis on REST and GraphQL APIs
-Interface API projects with open standards including OpenAPI and more
-Streamline API design and development workflows with custom API flows
-Enable multiple teams of developers to collaborate across multiple environments and platforms
-Enable spec-driven development by publishing to API marketplaces such as RapidAPI
With APIs taking center stage in organizations of all sizes, testing them is becoming more imperative. The central role they play also means API testing offers great advantages in bolstering software quality. APIs - being contractual and fixed in nature, also afford an opportunity to create stable and easy to maintain tests. For all these reasons - API testing should be top of mind for every modern software team.
Join RapidAPI Testing Product Owner, Stanis Giovanni, for a practical webinar where he dives deeper into:
-Why so many enterprises are prioritizing API testing.
-8 best practices for modern API testing.
-How RapidAPI Testing helps with comprehensive testing from development through deployment.
With RapidAPI Testing, dev teams can create and manage comprehensive API tests from development through deployment, and help your organization accelerate Innovation and bring software to market faster.
Join RapidAPI CEO Iddo Gino on October 29th, for a short webinar on how RapidAPI Testing helps dev teams and organizations:
-Create complete and customizable functional API test flows with an easy-to-use interface for visual, automated or code-based test generation.
-Centrally and securely monitor and manage all API tests globally to ensure performance of applications, APIs and microservices.
-Improve development efficiency with built-in collaboration capabilities and a dedicated webhook for integration across the CI/CD pipeline.
Applications Programming Interfaces (APIs) have risen in popularity and adoption by financial services, which has been thrust into the API economy by regulatory involvement in open banking and PSD2, evolving customer expectations, and the growth of fintech startups bringing technology to every aspect of banking. APIs fuel innovation and elevate customer experiences by enabling banks to enhance their web portals and mobile applications, extend payment systems, and expand their offerings by exposing data and services to customers and partners.
In this session, RapidAPI’s Founder and CEO, Iddo Gino:
-Explores the driving forces behind this rise in adoption for APIs in financial services
-Examines the types of APIs being created and exposed by banks around the world
-Presents a set of recommendations for doing APIs smartly based on information from more than a dozen different banks

Companies are increasingly investing in APIs as an essential element for making enterprise systems and services more responsive and adaptable. However as the API economy begins to grow, what has become apparent is that APIs are key for building new business models, digital strategies, and partnerships. As companies begin to invest more heavily in APIs and look to take advantage of this new economy, the questions remain: How do companies actually drive revenue using APIs? What are the business drivers behind exposing APIs? What are the best practices for pricing? Are there industry standards for developing an API Monetization Strategy or is it still the Wild, Wild West?
Join Iddo Gino, Founder and CEO at RapidAPI, and Idit Oryon, Head of Global Partnerships, as they examine the monetization of APIs and drive clarity around some of the most common questions:
- What is the best API Strategy to put in place when considering monetization?
- What are the most common API business use cases?
- What are the best pricing models for APIs?
- How can my organization get started?
RapidAPI is the world's largest API Marketplace — used by over one million developers to discover and connect to thousands of APIs.
Using RapidAPI, developers can search and test the APIs, subscribe, and connect to the APIs — all with a single account, single API key and single SDK. Engineering teams also use RapidAPI to share internal APIs and microservice documentation.
With the average organization consuming hundreds of internal APIs, it has become increasingly challenging for developers to find and share APIs and more difficult for organizations to manage them. To add to this, many companies are looking to share APIs with partners and customers to create microservices, new integrations, and product solutions.
A centralized API Hub is needed to manage friction, prevent resource duplication, and break the data and engineering silos. An API Hub provides a single place for organizations to publish and share the APIs that they are building and allow others to easily discover and search for them through a managed, centralized environment.
Join RapidAPI Founder and CEO Iddo Gino as he discusses how to:
-Overcome the discovery, connectivity, and governance challenges that come with APIs
-Evaluate the top requirements for an API Hub to determine what is needed for your organization
-Integrate an API Hub environment with existing systems, gateways, portals, and infrastructure
